Dana Altman and the Oregon Ducks basketball program is on fire on the recruting trail. A week after landing 5-star center N’Faly Dante, Addison Patterson the number one prospect from Canada, has committed to the Ducks. Patterson is ranked as the nation’s 35th best player overall in the class of 2020 but he has chosen to reclassify to the 2019 class, and will be immediately eligible for the Ducks this season.
As of now, Patterson is the 12th highest-rated prospect to ever commit to Oregon and is also the program’s third-best shooting guard to ever commit.

With the addition of both Patterson and Dante, Oregon is now viewed as the PAC-12 favorite and a dark horse Final Four team.
Oregon had six scholarship players in June. Now they have a roster that’s completely full at 13 players, are the Pac-12 favorites in my eyes, and field a roster that’s capable of playing their way to the Final Four.
Dana Altman and his staff have built the Ducks back up.
